At our meeting on Monday, May 6, we will hold our NOMINATIONS for Officers for the Club’s 2019-2020 year. The Election Committee will provide names of nominees, and nominations may also be offered from the floor. We will also be selecting our competition themes for the coming year.
On Monday, May 20, we will hold our annual “Photograph Of The Year” (POTY) competition. Our Guest Judges for the POTY competition will be Brad Rice, Newman Jackson, and Ann Nester. Norm Connard, Competition Chairman, will be notifying all eligible Members to bring their photographs to this competition. We will also be wrapping up orders for CCC shirts and other merchandise at this meeting. Michael Boyd is in charge of item sales.
In addition to the POTY, we will hold our ELECTION of Officers, based on the Nominations received at the earlier meeting. New Officers will take office effective in June, the beginning of the new Club Year. Our Annual Awards Banquet is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, and will be held at “Angela’s On The River” in St. Albans, WV. More details will follow!
The Charleston Camera Club is the premier meeting place for all types of people who love photography. Whether you are an aspiring beginner or an advanced professional, we have something to offer you. We have several informative guest speakers yearly. The first meeting is always the first Monday of each month. Our guest speaker will focus on our artistic, technical or other aspects of our hobby. This is always very informative, and we gain knowledge and understanding of our artwork.
Our second meeting is the third Monday of the month. This is an excellent opportunity to see our Members’ work. Every other month is a scheduled theme for us to show our unique interpretation. The following competition is open, allowing photographs of any subject. Competitions are divided into separate categories: Color and Black & White, divided into Novice, Intermediate & Advanced classes; Digital Art, which has been significantly altered; and High Dynamic Range (HDR). If you wish, you can request to have your entry critiqued by one of our experienced Members. Complete competition rules are here on the website.
The Club also works for Members to arrange exhibits in galleries and businesses in the Charleston area and throughout the state. We have held exhibits at Charleston University, Marshall University, the Federal Courthouse, and other venues.
Club Members also plan special outings to socialize and photograph interesting locations. We can learn from one another and see how differently we interpret our surroundings. We have visited Kanawha State Forest, the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Canaan Valley, the West Virginia Farm Museum and many more locations.
